nope you sure don't. They are 'lowfat custom' The wire and banana plugs are actually from Monoprice. Sleeving is MDPC.

they definitely are not. I have those banana plugs and they are definitely monoprice. I haven't bothered to do my wiring up nice since i live in an apartment currently and can't be bothered. On a side note. You should buy a bunch of ends, sleaving and make some common lengths similar to the rocketfish and sell them for 1/2. you would still make a ton of cash.

I was thinking about that but my receiver is a bit old and doesn't have any HDMI inputs. My TV won't pass surround sound so I'd still have pretty much the same problem. Wouldn't mind having a nice new receiver anyway.

Yeah it looks weak but it's actually pretty sturdy. I forget what it was weighted for when I got it but it was a nice bit more then my TV. It's been sitting just fine for two years anyway. My TV isn't too heavy either (only a 40 inch).

well i love my marantz, but then again marantz isn't for everyone. I also like the recievers by denon and yamaha. stay as far away from sony as possible.

Default Some quick pics

Since my living room is a disaster with working on my HTPC, I just took some pics of the screen and projector for now.




Have an anamorphic lens in front of the projector to elimnate all black bars on all movies









I took this pic to show the baseball cap on the speaker to show for scale
